Units for the Assyrian Wars project continue mustering out from the painting desk. I must admit that I have become quite energized by this project. The Assyrian Army is a varied and interesting army to field.
Today's finished unit is a 14 figure stand of Auxiliary spearmen from Wargames Foundry. The tall, dirty white shields I like. Expect to see another unit or two carrying white shields in the future. Foundry's Assyrians are fun to paint and look good in close order. Even though much of my painting activity over the summer has been focused on this project, I have not tired of painting Assyrians yet. Good thing. A box of assorted unpainted Assyrians remains.
Two more units remain on the workbench for this project. After those two units are completed, I will take a breath and hold a pass-in--review. Surprising to me how quickly an army can be fielded.
Sticking with the Assyrian Wars project for a moment more, I picked up Foundry's Kallapani set and wondering what to do with it under Impetvs rules. Impetvs lists Kallapani as a 'T' missile stand that moves like cavalry or chariot of 3H. Should the cart with riders be mounted onto a stand with dismounted archers? Should the cart be mounted separately from the 'T' missile stand? If so, how?
